"I have had the pleasure to work with Jim at two agencies. Jim brings his best effort to every client across a variety of industries from mobile to c.e. devices and services. What sets Jim apart from many PR pros is his crafty-ness on searching out the right, best editor to tell his client's story. He is brilliant at cultivating strong relationships with clients and media alike. Equally important - Jim is a very skilled writer. He can digest complex technical and business information and encapsulate it clearly for media consumption. Jim is dependable and a true team player. Plus - a fantastic mentor."
